Question about ASUS P5VD2-MX SE Motherboard
A few days ago i DL speedfan to monitor temp setting of my new bought VideoCard Fan and speedfan came up with 3 temp settings, of which should be 1:CPU, 2:case fan temp, and the 3rd something somewhere else to be connected to my MB but i cant figure it out, nothing like fans are attached to my MB and the temperature varies from 6 celcius to about 35 celcius, now speedfan also shows a Fan3 with a std. 0 RPM, but I'm sure all the fans in my sys are rotating.
here some additional information about the temp place of where speedfan gets the information:
now my question: does my MB have an additional spot to connect a fan?? I cant find it and nothing is told about it in the manual.
Hi dutchdj, speed fan software is not perfect. If you look on the motherboard, use your manual & go to page 1-6. You'll see there is a power connector in-between the memory & the main MB power connector. The 3-pin connector closest to the upper right hand of the board is for the CPU fan. The 3-pin power connector under the CPU fan connector is for the MB fan. You seem to have this covered. You are correct. There is no other 3-pin connectors for additional fans. (I went over your manual), your good!
It is possible that your software is trying to monitor the graphics card fan. I wouldn't worry about it. The temp 41c-44c is still within normal temp. If you want to help lower the over all temp, suggest you add 1 or 2 side case fans. These will bring in fresh air onto the MB & help cool CPU, MB, video & hdd's. I did this for my Asus & it has helped allot.
